Kylian Mbappe is a French footballer who played in different refugee teams because his parents were non-French. He is regarded as the best young footballer on the planet. He is the youngest player from France ever to play and score in the World Cup. Also, they had an underperformance when they lost the Champions League in 2019. Since 2017, Kylian has been a member of PSG (Paris Saint-Germain).
He was chosen for this team because he had previously single-handedly led the France national football team to victory, impressing PSG enough to choose him for a two-month summer window. Kylian is a person that is exceptionally kind and welcoming. He comes from an overwhelming background. Cristiano Ronaldo is his idol, and he aspires to play for Real Madrid someday.
Player profile: Style of play
Kylian is a direct player, which means that when the ball is passed to him, he immediately shoots towards the goal. For him, the game’s strategy is ‘won’t look back at the path.’ He is both an individual and a team player. Kylian can play as a striker or a centre forward (final third position). He dribbles pretty well and makes excellent one-two passes with his teammates.
Professional football career
Kylian Mbappe’s football career has been a massive success from the outset. He began his career as a member of the refugee team. His first coach was his father. In 2015, he played for AS Monaco initially. PSG signed him after watching his fantastic performance with France national football team.
Kylian was brought in by Leonardo Jardim in October 2015 to be a fixture in Monaco’s B-team, but his level of skill and maturity made him upgraded to the main squad after only three weeks. Two months later, in December 2015, he made his first-team debut, in a League 1 home draw against Caen. As a result, at the age of 16, he became Monaco’s youngest first-team player. In February 2016, Kylian scored his first goal for Monaco’s first team, an outage goal to win over Troyes at home in League 1 at the age of 17 years; he became the club’s youngest first-team goal scorer ever. Kylian signed his first professional contract, a three-year deal, with Monaco on March 6, 2016.
Paris Saint Germain
Mbappé was signed on loan from Monaco by Paris Saint-Germain on August 31, 2017. With the World Cup just a year away, Kylian wanted to join a renowned club where he could be sure of a starting spot. A complete transfer cost of €145 million-plus €35 million in add-ons was reportedly required, making him the most expensive teenager ever, the most expensive transfer ever within a domestic league, and the second most expensive player after Neymar Jr. (Read our PSG betting Predictions and Odds – Mbappe’s current team.)
